Bio/Research

Professor Srbely's interest in clinical biomechanics and neurophysiology evolved during his years as a primary health care provider in chiropractic and acupuncture. Over two decades of clinical observation underscored the fact that these, and other commonly adopted conservative clinical therapies/interventions, have a profound impact on human physiology, the scope and mechanisms of which are still poorly characterized. He began a private practice in 1992 where he quickly developed a fascination for the clinical enigma of chronic musculoskeletal pain, the most common form of which being chronic myofascial pain.

Professor Srbely's research program adopts a broad and integrative approach to the study of chronic musculoskeletal pain, incorporating both basic and clinical sciences. A major arm to his research program is investigating the underlying pathophysiologic mechanisms using both animal and human models. His research also aims to advance reliable diagnostic criteria (imaging, biomarkers) and physical assessment techniques (quantitative sensory testing, electromyography) that enable effective and reliable treatment and management strategies. By emphasizing transdisciplinary and multi-institutional collaborations, his research program will continue to inform future clinical and experimental initiatives in the field of chronic musculoskeletal pain.
